Gibson Family Health Care In The News

  • Local nursing homes approved by Accreditation Canada

    A rigorous review of health care practices at two family-owned long-term care homes has resulted in approval by Accreditation Canada.

    After visiting Carveth Care Centre in Gananoque and Helen Henderson Care Centre in Amherstview, two long-term care homes near Kingston, Ontario, Accreditation Canada stamped them with a high rate of approval for their level of care.

    “It is a huge accomplishment for a home to be accredited by Accreditation Canada and it speaks volumes about the quality-of-care and services that we provide,” says Angela Gibson, the senior manager who spearheaded the project for the home’s operating body, Gibson Family Health Care.

    “The accreditation process requires a lot of time and effort by many people,” she explains. “I am incredibly proud of our staff and management teams for their hard work. We are delighted to achieve this goal.”

    This approval means both homes meet or exceed the standard level of health care in Canada and are accredited until 2026.

    “The Gibson family is committed to continuous quality improvement for both our residents and team members,” adds Lisa Gibson, Owner and Operator of Helen Henderson Care Centre. “The Accreditation Canada process is just one of the many resources our organization uses to grow and improve the workplace, as well as the level of care and services we provide to our residents. I am proud of our teams’ ability to meet and exceed the standards developed by Accreditation Canada.”

    “I love working here,” says the popular Registered Practical Nurse (RPN). “I enjoy the residents, families, and the staff. I like helping people and my new position as Care Coordinator will allow me to continue to do that. I’m excited about this endeavour; It’s been a while since I’ve done anything new.”

    As the home’s new Care Coordinator, Lisa’s duties include acting as a liaison with families, supervising and assisting floor staff, supporting quality assurance and safety, and helping coordinate staff development. She is also the lead for the home’s wound care and pain management.
